2015 Tilo Schwarz: Toyota Kata = Enabling a Lean-CultureTilo Schwarz was formerly a Plant Manager at Festool in Germany, which was one of the five primary research sites for the book Toyota Kata. In this excellent 30-minute presentation you'll learn vital lessons about the Improvment Kata and Coaching Kata based on Tilo's deep experience. This presentation was made on 11 June 2015 at LEI Hungary's 4th annual International Lean Summit.
The Challenge of Developing Lean ManagementThis 45-minute video explains the role of Kata in modifying an organization's culture. Practicing the 'starter routines' of the Improvement Kata and Coaching Kata is a way of learning how to set and accomplish any challenging objective. Below are links mentioned in the video, including how to download the pptx slides for free.

========== For Educators ==========
This video can be used to provide background content for 'pre-review' online, prior to classroom or practice activities. Here's how to do it:
1) Have your Learners watch the video on their own time before a classroom or practice activity. Tell the Learners to write down what they think are the key points of the video. Advise the Learners that there will be a quiz and that they may be called upon.
2) Before the classroom/practice activity you (teacher/Coach) should also write down what you think are the key points in the video.
3) Begin the class/practice session by asking Learners what they got out of the video. Write their responses on a flipchart or whiteboard. This helps you see how the Learners are currently thinking. Key points that Learners miss are things you can emphasize in your instruction and coaching.
Jeremiah Davis: Kata at HomeStart 'em Early! Create Scientific Thinkers. The Davis Family shows us how we can use the Improvement Kata pattern with our kids, nephews, nieces, grandkids - right now! Just think how well prepared they will be for life's challenges. See a little more at: http://tinyurl.com/homekata.
The Improvement Kata & Coaching Kata's practice routines for scientific thinking can be applied in business, education and -- as shown in this video -- in our personal lives too. You can download the 5 Coaching Kata Questions, a blank PDCA Cycles Record and the Learner's Storyboard that the Davis boys use here: http://www-personal.umich.edu/~mrother/KATA_Files/5Q_Card.pdf
The Toyota Way and the Toyota KATA. Interview with Dr. Jeffrey LikerThis is a new 20-minute video interview with Professor Jeff Liker. In the video Jeff tells a story that amounts to a reflection and some potential 'pivots' for the Lean Community, and concludes with developing ourselves and others to keep improving, adapting and innovating not as a burden, but as a joy.
The Role of 'Challenge' in the Improvement KataThe first step of the Improvement Kata -- "Understand the Direction or Challenge" -- is often overlooked, but is highly important for the three steps that follow. In this video Tyler Fife shares experiences from BiAmp Systems in Portland, Oregon to provide an excellent description of what Challenge is, how it fits in and what happens if you skip over this step of the Improvement Kata pattern.
This video comes from the many Improvement Kata / Coaching Kata activities of the Northwest High Performance Enterprise Corporation (NWHPEC); which is the Lean Consortium and home base for a Community of Kata Practice in the Portland, Oregon area.

Kata 5 Fragen.mp4Es wird erklärt, wie man sich die fünf Fragen, die ein Mentor seinem Mentee im Rahmen eines Toyota-Kata-Verbesserungscoaching stellen soll, einfach mit Hilfe von Gedächtnistechniken einprägen kann.
Every Step is an ExperimentBeware of first impressions when you're problem solving. Your mind creates narratives out of whatever information it receives, and those narratives are subject to change as new information comes along. It's a good idea to think of every step as an experiment.
The 'Ladder of Inference' by Chris Argyris describes the mental process that happens, usually without us realizing it, as we go from information to action.
